Cosmetic Acupuncture, also know as Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation, is an effective non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Eastern Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable single use needles into acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion increases the local circulation in the face and stimulates collagen production, smoothing out the lines and giving firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many conditions and illnesses. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been related to the manipulation of the energy points on the body to balance and to remove blockages in the meridians (channels of blood and energy), in order to achieve health and to prevent diseases.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has attracted great attention in the last few years, especially in the big cities like New York City and Los Angeles. It used to be a treatment only for the rich and famous in Hollywood, but now everyone wants the royal treatment.
A 1996 report in the international journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that in a study of 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The study stated that the effects included improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation.
What is a typical course of treatment?
A course of the treatment consists of 10-12 sessions. These sessions are 2 times per week for 5-6 weeks for best results. Each person responds differently to the treatment depending on variables such as age and lifestyle. Visible results may be noticeable after just 1 or 2 sessions, but it usually takes 6-7 sessions for most. Maintenance may be needed every month, or once a quarter.
The cost for an individual Cosmetic Acupuncture session is $125.
A package of 10 sessions of Cosmetic Acupuncture is $1000.
